Hi Camille,
the text is centered. Therefore, it will move when the length changes. 
To prevent this, either make the number always the same size:
NumberForm[c // N, {4, 3}]
or even better, place the text at an definite location by useing the 
second and third argument of Inset:
Manipulate[Graphics[{Circle[],Inset[Style[StringJoin["value:",ToString[NumberForm[c//N,{4,3}]]],Blue,20],{-.3,0},{-1,-1}]}],{{c,(2 
\[Pi])/3,"Value c"},-1,2 Pi,0.001}]
hope this helps, Daniel
